Dementia & Memory Care
Dementia is a broad and inclusive term used to describe a number of memory-related conditions. Although Alzheimer’s is the most common form, there are numerous other conditions that severely affect memory; including Lewy body disease and vascular dementia. Alzheimer’s currently affects over 47 million worldwide and that number is expected to triple by 2050.
Most forms of dementia are progressive, affecting nearly every part of daily living. Often, the disease first presents as simple confusion and short-term memory loss. Each person progresses differently; however, most can expect dramatic changes in thinking, judgement, language, mood, and behavior. These changes often disrupt daily life as they struggle with planning, problem-solving, communicating, and completing basic self-care. There are a number of senior care options available that cater to memory loss specifically, including in-home and residential options. SeniorsandHealth.com is committed to providing essential information and resources to help seniors and caregivers alike.
